Fuel filter in carb is pulgged, there is usally a brass filter just behind the fuel line connection to the carb. that is plugged or worse yet you float needle valve is stuck. sometime you can losen the needle valve up by smacking the float bowl a couple of times with the plastic end of a screw driver. sometimes that will losen it up. Other wise you will have to remove the top of the carb and clean the float assembly.

remove the fuel line from the carb, put it into a bottle, crank the engine, If the bottle has fuel in it the fuel pump is working properly, if not, check the filter, and the fuel lines to the tank!!!

I need to ask a few questions and please do not think I am insulting you.
How much gas is in tank?
Is the gas good gas and not with water in it? Can you take any gas from the hose into a clear container and wait a minute and see if separation occurs?
Can you see gas squirt into carburetor when you pull on the accelerator cable or push the lever in on the carb? If you can see it..it is going into the intake and .most likely bad gas.
Lastly and another problem area is the fuel jet inside the carb is stuck or has an obstruction such as goo from bad gas?
This gives you some ideas on what to look for and thanks for using FixYa.
